Well, I have some serious problems with xscreensaver as well (it
_sometimes_ activates during replay even though myth pokes it
regularly). I was thinking of replacing it with gnome screensaver but
after this #7380 I no longer think about it.

Given that even mplayer (as an external player) cannot deactivate the
screensavers properly without side effects I thought it was best if we
removed all screensavers (on standalone frontends) and added an own
simple screensaver to MythFrontend (with automatic shutdown after a
period of inactivity, because that's the only reason why I have a
screensaver installed - to turn off the mythfrontend automatically).

This is just an idea (without a patch), not feature request...
